Just an F-Blog #64. Up there...

A 45 minute drive, a 10 minute cable car lift and a 20 minute chair lift... journey and you're up there. The place is Velika planina, which means Big mountain in Slovene. Well, it's not really big (high) actually, but it's a really nice place for a tiny escape and it's really known for shepherds and cows and alike, well at least in Summer. Iggy organised a belated birthday weekend for the family. And since I wasn't mentally prepared for three days in a rather small mountain hut with 8 more or less adults, a baby and a dog, I decided I will only go to Velika planina  on Saturday. A good decision. LOL

So, here are a few shots from today, whole set is flickr'd.

What a great building. Reminds of the stave churches I've seen pictures of in Norway. Good to see you taking pics again - Bravo!

Yes, these cottages look great. And it's the design that had been "polished" for centuries. Mountain is full of those cottages. The ones which are not converted in little pensions, are still used by shepherds.

No snow? Wow! Isn't there usually more?
Mar. 19th, 2012 11:25 pm (UTC)
Snow is slowly kissing goodbye. But there was a lot of in on the northern side of the mountain, which I totally skipped.

It may not be big, but it sure is beautiful.

Lovely photos. :)

Those wooden roof tiles, how do they prevent them from rotting?

And OMG a baby on top of all? LOL

I wonder if those tiles are cedar? It holds up somewhat better than other woods when used like that...

Looks like a very pretty location and I love the look of the cottage.
Mar. 19th, 2012 11:28 pm (UTC)
It is pretty. And those cottages are very traditional and typical for this mountain.

That spot looks spectacular. You have no idea how much I mention visiting Slovenia - the the point Brian sometimes accuses me of being an agent of the Slovene tourist bureau...

The ski lift - they should add a summer-season zip line to it...
Mar. 19th, 2012 11:29 pm (UTC)
Well, mention it a lot more... to the point Brian can't resist any more! :)
Mar. 19th, 2012 04:20 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I was feeling a little nostalgic looking at these pictures. I cannot lie, it is a beautiful place. It's just too bad about most of the people that live there....
Mar. 19th, 2012 11:29 pm (UTC)
I couldn't agree more. People are the greatest problem here. And they are constantly dragging this country down.
